Sky Evans has been painting for over 40 years as well as being an avid hiker and horsewoman with thousands of miles of trail experience. Back in her studio, inspired by the wilderness and woods, she recreates her experiences in oil and canvas.
She recently completed a 150-mile solo hike of the Pacific Crest Trail and added more images to her series, The Wilderness of Women (WOW). The WOW series are all trail paintings, recreated from photos taken by women hikers.
With a degree in Art from OSU and one in Education from WOS, Sky worked as an Art teacher and later started her own painting company. She now focuses on fine art and writing. Besides private sales, Sky’s work appears in the murals of Monroe, a 100’ long barn roof near the Eugene Airport, as signage throughout the county as well as the label of Bluebird Hill Wine. She even painted a 30 foot labyrinth at the Tamarack Wellness Center in Eugene.
Sky painted a mural at the entrance of OSU's Goss Stadium, to commemorate the baseball team's winning the World Championship. When they won the second year, sadly, the mural was replaced with one less focused on the first win! But you can see it on her blog/website (An Oregon Studio) along with more of her work: www.skyevans.wordpress.com/gallery.
